Workshop on Watershed Protection with Steve Lewandowski

Steve Lewandowski will offer a watershed protection workshop at Green Fest on Saturday, Aug. 8 at 1:45 pm. Green Fest is being held on the campus of Alfred University. The workshop will be held in Kanakadea Hall, Room 105. Steve's watershed protection workshop will offer a basic introduction to watersheds, their characteristics, developing a problem statement, selection of remedial actions, political organization, and structural questions. He is not offering quick fixes—think in terms of decades. The workshop will outline significant issues in watershed protection and consider the examples of the watersheds of Canandaigua Lake, Hemlock and Canadice Lakes and Lake Ontario watersheds. There will be an opportunity for lots of Q&A.

Steve is the Program Director of the Lake Ontario Coastal Initiative. He is a founder of the Canandaigua Lake Watershed Alliance and the Coalition for Hemlock and Canadice Lakes. He has worked as an environmental educator and consultant in the western Finger Lakes for thirty-five years, and has worked closely with protection efforts for Cayuga, Seneca, Keuka, Canandaigua, and Honeoye Lakes. Steve has served on the Boards of the Finger Lakes Land Trust, Friends of Ganondagan State Historic Site, Pegasus Early Music, and the 1816 Quaker Meetinghouse Committee. He is a graduate of Hamilton College and did graduate work with Louis Jones in the Cooperstown Graduate Programs in American Folk Culture and with Howard Nemerov and William Gass at Washington University in St. Louis.
